Part of the What a Tool Project
Revisiting the Midland Railway Workshop’s significant contribution to the social and economic fabric of the Eastern region, works from the City of Swan Art Collection by Penny Coss and Nigel Hewitt were displayed alongside contemporary photographic works by Eva Fernandez. Historians Jude Carr and Lisa Buck presented historical photographs, oral histories and rail objects in juxtaposition to Futures Lab’s interactive digital railway pattern 3D printing installation. Capturing the aesthetic of the workshop patterns and reinterpreting local social history this exhibition brought together a blend of approaches and eras to ignite new discoveries.
OPEN SUN 7 OCT 11AM - 2PM, WED TO FRI 10AM – 5PM
